Roses: The Cariboo Chilcotin Metis Association would like to send a bouquet of roses to all those people who donated up to 16 hours of volunteer time a day, for  four days, in order for the Metis Jamboree to be a success that it was on the Aug. 9/10 weekend.

We would also like to send roses to people like Perfect Match who donated proceeds from their cd sales, all of our sponsors local and provincial, and most of all to all those people who came so many miles away and said they enjoyed the Cariboo so much that they will return next year.

Thank you each and everyone.
